Apparently Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who who was critical of the current regime in Saudi Arabia, walked into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and er..never walked out.
No one saw him exit the consulate, least his fiancee who was patiently waiting outside.
The Saudis conjured up a story that he somehow exited the consulate without being seen by anyone. Was he a practitioner of Ninjistsu, or did he acquire an invisibility blanket a la Harry Potter?
The Turks, have another theory, which is much more gruesome, according to a police official, he was “brutally tortured, killed and cut into pieces” inside the consulate after visiting the building on 2 October.
Other theories floating about, is that the pieces of meat were taken out in shifts, and sold to nearby kebab shops as lamb.
“I just enjoyed a great doner kebab. There was only one problem, I found some identity papers in the kebab written in Arabic, with some Saudi guy on the photo. The kebab was delicious, so I thought nothing of it and put the papers in the bin after I finished my fantastic meal,” an Australian tourist revealed yesterday.
The search for the poor fellow goes on..
